Sheet Music Tree Filler Ornaments

I found this neat sheet music tree ornament idea at a home decor store done slightly different & thought I could easily tweak it a bit to fit into my Christmas decor. Happily, I was right! It was really easy to make these cute tree fillers! 

For those of you who don't know what I mean by "tree fillers", here's my definition: Christmas decorations that don't hang on the branches but sit on the branches. I use twiggy things & sprigs of silver leaves, & now these little goodies on my Christmas tree.

Here's the how to:

Start with:

  • Sheet Music
  • Birds (or other decoration) on a wire stick
  • Decorating twigs (I used glittery blue & silver ones)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Tape
  • Wire cutters or pliers with wire cutters

Roll the sheet music & tape.

Take the wired birds & bend the wire into a "J" shape to start if off before you wrap it around the sheet music. If you don't, you'll crush the music.

Now wrap the wire around the rolled sheet music.

Cut some twigs off of the bunches you have, using wire cutters or pliers, arrange & glue the around the bird.

They were so fast to make too. I made 6 & it took me maybe half an hour - I'm happy about that!

What do you think? I'm slowly, but surely giving my Christmas tree decor a little makeover. And I'm doing it DIY style too! Next week, I'll have another sheet music ornament to show you as well as a tree topper. (Can you see a theme developing here? I can, and I love it!)
